Swimming pool option

I don't recall ordering the slide topper swimming pool option. Happens every time it rains. Some folks put beach balls between the slide roof and the topper. Any other creative suggestions to keep water from pooling up?

Increase the tension on each end by 4-6 turns.

Don't have the swimming pool option, but I did request they replace the circular stairway to the attic and basement with an elevator.
But, I have 3 toppers on my Lexi and after 3 years their still tight as a drum. Looks like your's dosen't have or has lost tension. Must be some way to tighten it up or re-roll it.

As the others have said, it definitely should not sag like that. No way to tighten it?

Torsion springs on both ends can be tightened. 30-45 minute job.

X2 mine are tight but the large slide when perfectly love fills up, I am always front high a bit so the water runs off easier.

On my 16' they were tight also but it would pool in the center until I added 5 or 6 more turns in the 2 torsion springs. Doesn't pool anymore.

Side out toppers

We our using our second rv with slide outs. Never used the toppers.
We take a 6 foot step ladder that we attach to our rear bumper to
clean and inspect our slide outs before closing. We use our used bath
towels to swipe across the slide outs and on our extended ends before
closing up. IMO, toppers sound great, but do you ever inspect between
them and the slide outs before closing? I'm sure that if you did you
would see some dirt and debris that will constantly build up through use.

I am not a strong believer in toppers.
